What's new in Episode 192

Sebastian Rupley, Co-Crank, Editor, GigaOm.com
Harry McCracken, Editor-in-Chief, Technologizer
Dave Mathews, Inventor, Tech Journalist

The Topics:
Google Dashboard is Watching You

"Google has finally revealed all it knows about me--and it's a lot," writes PCMag Editor in Chief Lance Ulanoff. Thanks to Google's new Dashboard feature, anyone with a Google account (essentially a Gmail address) can see everything the company is tracking about them. Is Dashboard a good move from Google in light of all the privacy invasion accusations it gets?

Skype Founders Negotiate 14 Percent of Company

eBay said Friday that it had agreed to spin off VOIP company Skype to an investment group, which now includes Skype's founders, for $1.9 billion in cash plus a $125 million note. Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis will receive 14 percent of the company they founded and sold to eBay in 2005.

T-Mobile Users Reeled During Outage

T-Mobile customers are still seething after a major outage last week that left many people across the country unable to text and call their friends and business associates. Emotions ran high. Are people addicted to their mobile devices?

Woman to Live Stream Her Baby's Birth

A 23-year-old Minnesota woman named Lynsee is opening up the birth of her child to the world wide Web. She will stream the birth on the social site MomsLikeMe. Is this taking social networking a bit too far?

Bloggers vs. Journalists

The New Hampshire Supreme Court heard oral arguments last week in a lawsuit that calls into question the legal protections available to independent Web sites that cover news. The case involves a web site called Implode-Explode, which writes pointed articles about the mortgage industry's meltdown. A court asked it to reval anonymous sources and writers refused. Do bloggers have the same rights to protect sources as journalists have?
